Black Queer Identity Matrix

Towards An Integrated Queer of Color Framework

Series:

Sheena C. Howard

This volume launches the first sustained discussion of the need for a queer of color conceptual framework around Black, lesbian female identity. Specifically, this volume addresses the necessity for a more integrated framework within queer studies, in which the variables of race/ethnicity are taken into consideration. This book is unique in that it highlights a triple-jeopardy minority group that has been historically marginalized and concludes with the proposal of a much-needed framework for researchers to begin to create a baseline of knowledge/research under the umbrella of the Black Queer Identity Matrix.

Extract



“For the first time, there is a book that provides a starting point for researchers to explore the communication patterns of the queer of color community. This framework can be applied to the study of gender and sexual orientation for any researcher interested in mediated representations of minority groups. Black Queer Identity Matrix does a great job of addressing the necessity for a more integrated framework within queer studies, in which the variables of race and/or ethnicity are taken into consideration.”

—John Jennings, Associate Professor, University of Buffalo
